Steel as one of construction materials has several advantages compared to other construction materials. One of the advantages is it can withstand large tensile loads compared to wood and concrete. This research was conducted to find out the strength of the connection of two-faced steel plate tension member with bolts connection through experiment and compare it with theoretical calculations by using Allowable Stress Design (ASD) method. The focused structure is a two-faced connection tension member that is connected using bolts. Steel plated that used in this research are 8 mm and 10 mm thickness with bolt sizes Ø ¼ ", Ø 3/8" and Ø ½ ", each connection using three bolts as connector. The testing of the tension member connections in the laboratory is carried out by gradually loading the tensile load until the tensile member reaches the ultimate load. The results of experimental and theoretical research found that theoretical calculation of tensile strength smaller than tensile strength done experimentally.
